Merchants from the Arab world sailed across seas to establish strong trade ties with the world. However, it’s primarily within their lands and among their people that strong foundations were built. The Souq Waqif in Doha was a market that sold livestock around 100 years ago. It certainly does not date back to the days when the first marketplaces were established by the earliest sailors cum merchants; however it is somewhat of a window into that glorious past.Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara is an island of extravagance and undoubtedly the ideal Luxury Hotel, Doha. More excitingly, it is just twenty minutes away from the capital and closer yet to Souq Waqif.
Gleaming with a certain freshness brought about by recent renovations, yet retaining the charm of its past, Souq Waqif caters to a multitude of needs. Ruffle through traditional garments and inhale the punchy scents of spices within the building. You can even stroll through a long court yard that is part of the Souq Waqif Art Centre. You will be intrigued and amazed by the talent that is on display. If photo bombing is an art you specialize in, this court yard will provide you with ample light to be creative.
